Dolphins QB Not Expected To Play In Week 6

The Miami Dolphins were rocked by the division rival New York Jets in Week 5, and with all of the injuries the Dolphins have been dealing with over the past few weeks, there's a chance that they continue to struggle going forward. Unfortunately for Miami, their starting secondary were missing from the game, and then QB2 got hurt after Tua Tagovailoa was announced to be missing the game, and in more bad news for Dolphins fans, Head Coach Mike McDaniel has told the media today that Tua won't be back for Week 6, with Skylar Thompson expected to get the start. 

The Dolphins hot 3-0 start has now seen them drop back to 3-2 with the concussion issues surrounding Tagovailoa, and with a 4-1 Vikings upcoming next, the Dolphins season could continue spiralling out of control. 

Tua did return to practice today, so there's a good chance that going forward he can return, with the hope that the concussion issues aren't as bad as some fear, but in Week 6, the team will need to pull off an upset to keep pace in the AFC East. Thompson made his first NFL appearance in Week 5, and while he couldn't get the weapons in Miami rolling, he played a solid game, and if he can improve on that in Week 6, there's a chance that the team could certainly upset Minnesota.
